History of The Yonge Originals

Our Story


Welcome to the world of the Yonge Originals. We are a high energy cover band located, as our name would suggest, in the Greater Toronto Area. While we would likely be classified as a “classic rock band” we do our best to be quite a bit more than just that!

The Yonge Originals arose out of the ashes of High Octane in late 2016. At the time the band was largely doing hard rock covers but was in the midst of evolving into a more versatile band with the recent addition of keyboards and a female lead vocalist. As The Yonge Originals, we have continued this evolution to where we are now, a band equally comfortable playing rockers, ballads, 80s anthems, classic R&B and more modern pop and dance tunes. Our set lists are carefully and thoughtfully put together with you, the partying audience, in mind!

We are in the midst of making a name for ourselves in the Toronto bar scene. We are also available for private parties, corporate events, festivals etc. If you think we might suit your event, don’t hesitate to contact us. We would be happy to chat and are always open to tweaking our set lists to suit your needs.

We are very much looking forward to playing at a venue near you soon!  If you are looking to book us, please contact us!
